Angela Lansbury, proto-sub
Not the greatest movie ever, but worth checking out for Angela Lansbury as the manipulative girlfriend who keeps the bad guy wrapped around her finger. Towards the end, the heroes use a primitive two-man submarine to plant a bomb on the hull of another ship. I don't know if the sub design is historically accurate to 1812, but if it's not, just call it "steampunk" and enjoy it all the more.
